Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I felt completely comfortable around Dr. Delaney. I knew I could ask the "stupid" questions and she wouldn't treat me as if I should already know the answers. My first egg retrieval and transfer went relatively well although did not end with desirable results. Leading up to my second transfer, I was hospitalized for OHSS...During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney was compassionate and comforting, visiting me during my stay and discussing options for future transfers. She also called me personally on her cell phone once I returned home to ensure I was continuing a path to recovery.
Strengths and weaknesses of the nursing staff [at Methodist for Women] varied, as I would frequently work with different nurses. For the most part, I was very happy with the nurses I worked with. They were always upbeat, comforting, and knowledgeable...Monitoring appointments were first come first serve. Depending on the day, there could be a lengthy line down the hall...my egg retrieval expense was approximately $7,100. PGS testing for up to 8 embryos was $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos was $1,000.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
From the start of receiving my PCOS diagnosis in 2018, Dr. Delaney has been informative, re-assuring, and compassionate. In 2019, we transferred our first embryo which unfortunately did not stick around. Dr. Delaney felt this was primarily due to thin uterine lining. When I was ready to try again, Dr. Delaney wanted me to gain 10-15 pounds to increase estrogen levels and build a more robust uterine lining. I finally achieved my goal weight, although my second transfer was canceled on two occasions. One transfer was canceled due to thin uterine lining and the second was for OHSS complications leading to a short hospitalization. It should be noted that I was being monitored by other REs when my OHSS peaked, as Dr. Delaney was not available. It was Dr. Delaney, however, who determined my labs were critical and that I needed IV hydration. During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney admitted my case was more complicated than she initially anticipated. She shared with me that she closely communicates with her colleagues to determine the best and safest protocol to achieve our desired results. This was reassuring to know she cared enough to reach out to other specialists to help us achieve the results we've been praying for. Unfortunately, we have yet to see a positive pregnancy test after two transfers.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Take notes and advocate for yourself like you would with any other doctor. Remember that you are the customer and your RE is providing a service. Your questions and concerns are valid, as you're the one putting your body, emotions, and finances on the line. Don't be afraid to ask "stupid" questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I felt completely comfortable around Dr. Delaney. I knew I could ask the "stupid" questions and she wouldn't treat me as if I should already know the answers. My first egg retrieval and transfer went relatively well although did not end with desirable results. Leading up to my second transfer, I was hospitalized for OHSS. I was unbelievably frustrated, emotional, and uncomfortable. And truthfully? I was mad. Not only had our transfer been canceled, but I knew a hospitalization related to fertility medications would not be financially friendly on our household income. During my hospitalization, Dr. Delaney was compassionate and comforting, visiting me during my stay and discussing options for future transfers. She also called me personally on her cell phone once I returned home to ensure I was continuing a path to recovery.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
For my egg retrieval, I remember stimulating with Follistim. I also used Ganirelix and a Lupron trigger to prevent OHSS. As I prepared for my first transfer, I was using oral/vaginal/transdermal estrogen (unsure of dose), baby Aspirin, and progesterone in oil. I may have been taking something else, although it’s been so long I can’t remember. In preparing for my second transfer, Dr. Delaney's goal was to increase circulation to my uterus. Therefore, I was on the following medications: vaginal estrace 2x/daily, 1/2 tab vaginal Cialis, L-arginine, baby Aspirin, Del-Estrogen every third day, and progesterone in oil.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
Strengths and weaknesses of the nursing staff varied, as I would frequently work with different nurses. For the most part, I was very happy with the nurses I worked with. They were always upbeat, comforting, and knowledgeable. On occasion, I would work with a particular nurse over the phone who seemed to contradict what Dr. Delaney had previously told me and even recommended I start birth control on the wrong date. I have not worked with this nurse in quite some time – not by choice, just by chance. Most nurses have been really great at communicating with Dr. Delaney any questions I have to ensure we were all on the same page.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
Overall, the clinic is very efficient. Reception staff are always friendly and welcoming. If it weren't for the early hour blood work and ultrasounds, I don't know how I would be able to make this all work with my job.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Methodist for Women.
Monitoring appointments were first come first serve. Depending on the day, there could be a lengthy line down the hall. Knowing this, I always showed up at the time the clinic opened or even a bit earlier so I could commute to work. It has never been a problem with my schedule. I do, however, wish they allowed more time for questions/concerns following the monitoring appointment. I felt rushed sometimes and felt privacy to ask these questions was limited, as you are sometimes exposed to other patients due to the work space.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women.
At the time, my egg retrieval expense was approximately $7,100. PGS testing for up to 8 embryos was $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos was $1,000. Frozen embryo transfer was about $4,400. Medication expenses varied depending on the pharmacy for us. I would say we typically spent anywhere from $400-$1,000 on medications for egg retrieval and each transfer prep. This is a rough estimate!
Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
Dr. Delaney wasn't opposed to doing an embryo transfer with two embryos, as we discussed this to increase chances for success. Although she did not recommend doing a multiple embryo transfer at this time, as we have PGS tested embryos.

I felt comfortable with Dr. Delaney as soon as I met her the first time. She explained everything in detail and would always pause to ask if we had questions. She used models and pictures to show us what she meant. She was extremely compassionate and reassuring when discussing that our infertility diagnosis was not our fault and how she was going to help us overcome the obstacles we were given to start our family.
The [Methodist for Women] clinic is easy to access and comfortable. The lobby is full of Christmas cards from previous patients and their families which really shows the commitment of this clinic. The facility is updated and new. There is plenty of parking and hotels located nearby...All of the nursing staff was always very nice! They are encouraging and they stay late each night to make sure that all phone calls are made to communicate test results.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Delaney took as much time as we needed during our initial consultation to explain her plan and answer our questions. She also spent time asking us questions to get to know us outside of our fertility journey.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
Dr. Delaney first had me complete a sonohysterogram before beginning my treatments. For my first IUI cycle I used Gonal-F injections and a trigger shot with regular monitoring. I had previously completed cycles with Clomid with my regular OBGYN and she wanted to take a more aggressive approach. We are still waiting on results of this IUI cycle! I responded very well to the prescribed medicine.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr Delaney’s a wonderful doctor who is compassionate, caring, understanding and extremely smart and capable of helping a patient determine the best path and what options are available. I have multiple friends that were only successful with Dr Delaney and everyone told me that they believe she just has the magic touch as each one was also successful having babies with her and now I am also expecting my first baby in 6 weeks! We had multiple setbacks during our journey, but I always felt like she had a plan for what our next step would be and she was there to hold my hand. She is a great listener, she cares deeply for her patients and truly wants the best for each and every one. Infertility is such a struggle and doesn’t always work out, but I truly believe she will exhaust all options available to help a patient be successful and think outside the box depending on each individual situation. She has a carefully crafted strategy and was extremely good at communicating so I was fully aware of what was happening and what our options were at all times. I truly believe I would not have been successful getting pregnant without Dr Delaney and will forever be grateful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Without question, engage with Dr Delaney to help you. You will love her!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Delaney was very compassionate and caring through my whole process. After having multiple surgeries to try to conceive naturally, she helped guide me to what was needed to be successful with IVF. Through the ups and downs of the entire process, I felt like she was like a sister that was fighting for me. She genuinely felt my pain, disappointment and frustration with me and also the joy and happiness when we were able to get pregnant. This process is a rollercoaster of emotions and she was with me every step of the way guiding me through each of my options. She is the best!
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I initially went to meet her in 2019 and she recommended I remove my Fallopian tubes at the time due to severe endometriosis and a very bad appendectomy surgery 10 years ago. I was not ready to do this and wasted 18 months having other surgeries in hopes I could one day conceive naturally. Had I listened to her from day one I would have saved a lot of time and money. I went back to her to move forward with IVF. We did one egg retrieval and were successful with 6 embryos. We tried the first embryo transfer and it was not successful. She determined I need to get the inflammation under control and we tried a few months of lupron to settle the endometriosis. We also did a biopsy of the uterine lining to determine the precise moment in which an embryo would be most successful attaching to my lining. After the lupron and biopsy were complete, she engaged with a specialist to remove my Fallopian tubes which were stuck due to extreme scar tissue and required a robotic surgery. Upon recovery we went right into the next embryo transfer and were successful!

I felt like Dr Delaney just used the same protocol for us as she would for any 37/38 year old, and didn’t take into account our specific issues. She also wasn’t very transparent with why she was choosing a particular treatment so we felt like we were in the dark much of the time...We felt Dr Delaney wasn’t a good communicator and that was the main issue...She was very intimidating to talk to and it was very hard to ask questions...
Some of the nurses [at Methodist for Women] were great - compassionate and kind. None of them were on the same page as Dr Delaney. When I’d call with questions, they’d tell me to talk with a nurse. So I would and the nurse would answer my questions. Then when I’d ask Dr Delaney the same thing she’d give me a completely different answer...It is hard for me to rate the clinic on a whole because I only dealt with 1 doctor, Dr Delaney. My experience with her colors my experience of the whole place. I don’t think this is a good clinic for an over 35 patient to be seen at.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
We felt Dr Delaney wasn’t a good communicator and that was the main issue. She didn’t get to know me or my husband at all and so she didn’t fully understand what we were wanting to get out of treatment. She was very intimidating to talk to and it was very hard to ask questions. We found out later on in treatment that she neglected to give us some very basic tips that could have helped us (don’t exercise, for example). Finally, she was not compassionate to our losses at all. We had 3 while we were in treatment, and she didn’t say a word. At the end of several failed cycles, she said she would only continue treating us if we used donor eggs going forward. We decided to walk away at that point. The next time my husband and I tried, we became pregnant, and carried the pregnancy to term. This, above all else, makes me question all of the treatment we received under Dr Delaney’s care and with this clinic.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
In retrospect, I think she is severely biased against older patients. I would recommend strongly against seeing her or even going to this clinic if you are over 35. If you’re younger, would still recommend looking elsewhere unless you have a relatively easy to solve issue (that seems to be the type of patient she is looking for!)

Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
3 IUIs, 2 IVFs that failed and were converted to IUIs. Not sure why she did 3 IUIs - we had reduced ovarian reserve + low sperm count. Later on we found out the standard protocol for low ovarian reserve is to move to IVF after 1 IUI.

Describe Abigail Delaney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
We elected to do single embryo transfer as that was the safest option for me and baby due to my cervical issues being able to safely carry if it were to be successful (which was the right choice because with both pregnancies i had to get a cerclage placed to carry to term).

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I would describe Dr. Delaney as kind, smart and confident. She clearly outlined our treatment path and how that could change based on how my body responded. She took time to ask if I had any questions at each appointment and answer them clearly. During my first treatment cycle, I took 5mg letrozole CD3-7, and at my first monitoring ultrasound, Dr. Delaney calmly told me, pending blood work, it appeared I had already ovulated literally hours prior, and we'd likely need to cancel the IUI. It was disappointing, obviously, but she handled the situation in a way that prevented me from spiraling. She personally called with the blood work results to tell me I had ovulated and what we would do differently next cycle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?

Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
My husband had a normal and in fact strong sperm analysis, save low morphology. My tests (CD3 blood work, a saline sono, and ultrasound) came back normal, apart from subclinical hypothyroidism. She explained that if I weren't TTC, my TSH level would be fine but since I'm planning a pregnancy, she wanted me on a low dose of levothyroxine to lower that number below 2.5. During our first treatment cycle, I was instructed to call on CD1 and come in on CD3 for a baseline ultrasound. During that CD3 appointment, I saw a different doctor who told me to come back on CD14 for my first monitoring appointment. (I typically ovulated between CD16-19.) Dr. Delaney had prescribed 5 mg of letrozole on cycle days three through seven to "strengthen" ovulation and potentially recruit more than one follicle so the sperm would have multiple targets. When I came to my monitoring appointment, Dr. Delaney did my ultrasound and determined I had already ovulated from two follicles. She told me we'd follow the same treatment path, but I would come in on CD11 instead for my first monitoring appointment. We did that during our second treatment cycle. I used 10,000 units of Pregnyl to trigger ovulation the night of my monitoring appointment and returned ~36 hours later for our IUI. My husband had an abnormally low post-wash count of 4 million. The clinic will do IUI with counts as low as 2 million – they did not explain why they were willing to go that low. The IUI was not successful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
I interacted with a number of nurses. All of them were kind and also empathetic when I called to tell them about my negative test following our IUI. They were organized and gave clear instructions. They were not able to answer questions about why my husband's sperm did so poorly in the wash. When they called to relay my treatment plan after my failed IUI, they were not able to answer when I asked why Dr. Delaney wanted to move to injectables even though I responded well to letrozole.

I came to Dr. Delaney after 3 failed IVF attempts and being told I would more than likely need an egg donor. She immediately disagreed and gave us so much hope, explaining that we could try things a little differently and still have a great chance of having our own children. It’s not often that you go through something like this and come out with a doctor that you would also consider a friend.
I only had one retrieval [at Methodist for Women] but had 27 eggs retrieved, 15 day 5 embryos and 6 viable after PGS...They got to know me pretty well with how much I was there! They were all great and always greeted me in clinic and on the phone as a person, not just one of their patients...All of the doctors are amazing so even if you don’t see your own, you can feel comfortable knowing you’re still in great hands. Be prepared to spend some time in the waiting room because they are a busy clinic! But I do think that goes to show the amount of patients that want to see them.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about Dr. Delaney. Coming from a doctor who I felt somewhat gave up on our case, she got me through one of the hardest times of my life. And although it wasn’t an easy road, she handled the bumps in a way that kept me comfortable throughout the entire grueling process. I never doubted that she would get us a family and she made sure that I didn’t.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Sometimes the process takes time and a LOT of effort on you and the doctors part, but if you can, give it that time! It’s not always a quick fix, but If you let her, Dr. Delaney will put her entire heart into getting you your desired family!

Gonal F for stimulation for retrieval and also for stimulated transfers because my lining wouldn’t thicken for transfers with estrogen. I only had one retrieval with her, but had 27 eggs retrieved, 15 day 5 embryos and 6 viable after PGS.

I felt like she [Dr. Abigail Delaney] really rushed and pushed us to pursue IVF. She said it was our only option to get pregnant. I felt like there maybe should have been new blood work tests done for me since she was looking at some from my OB office and all the results were good on those. I also feel like I should have had a ultrasound or scan done to make sure everything was good for me on the inside. There was no talk on things that could be done to help my husbands SA. He later went to a urologist and received help there, but that was never mentioned as an option at the time. We were two 25 year old, newlyweds with student debt and had no way to afford IVF. I just felt like more could have been checked/discussed before jumping right into that option. We decided to make some lifestyle changes, get healthy, and take time off from doctors. We will see a second one later this year.
I loved the clinic [Methodist for Women]! It was nice and calming. The girls at the front desk were so helpful and answered any questions I had. They were accommodating. It was also nice that their office is attached to an amazing hospital with the best labor and delivery doctors and nurses...I felt like she [Dr. Abigail Delaney] really rushed and pushed us to pursue IVF.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I didn’t feel like she really connected with me or took the time to. It was more so just her reading over the blood work that my OB had done and the semen analysis results for my husband. She did not do any new tests on me or scans or anything. She just pretty much said that since I told my OB the symptoms I was having I have PCOS (even though all my blood work is normal)

Dr. Delaney always personally made sure to answer my questions and make me feel heard.

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I absolutely love Dr. Delaney. I don’t have any complaints about her. I always feel cared for and she always seems invested in my success. Throughout this whole process I have always felt that she has been rooting for us and truly hopes she helps us to become parents.

After trying three iui’s, our doctor said she would do one more if we wanted but we didn’t want to waste the money on something that wasn’t working. With the egg retrieval cycle, she adjusted my meds whenever necessary and tried to find the sweet spot between getting a lot of eggs and overstimulation me.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Methodist for Women.
It was first come first serve hours. The only complaint I have about this is that the building opened at 6am and the office opened at 6:30 am and we all had to wait outside the door in the hallway. It always bothers me that they never have chairs out in the hallway for us. We pay a lot of money to sit on the floor. I also wish there was some way for us to know how many people are supposed to be coming in the morning. Some days the line outside the door is 3 people and sometimes it’s 15.

Monitoring ultrasounds were $225 each, bloodwork $94 each time. Iui was $800. Egg retrieval was $7,100. Biopsy of up to 8 embryos $1,200. Cryopreservation of embryos $1,000. Frozen transfer $4,398.

From the moment that I had my initial consultation I had a renewed sense of hope for a course of treatment. My wife and I had been trying for a year already with donor sperm at home. I had a chemical pregnancy and a missed miscarriage in that time. Dr. Delaney was very kind and hopeful that with some additional testing and treatment, I may be able to have a successful pregnancy. She answers my questions and seems to genuinely care about me as her patient.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I would tell a prospective patient that Dr. Delaney is very kind and to try to be patient because all of this fertility treatment takes a long time.

Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I had baseline testing and an ultrasound for one monitoring cycle. I was then put on 75 iu of Follistim injections for the first 5 days of a new cycle and after an ultrasound I was bumped up to 150 iu of Follistim for 4 more days. I had 2 follicles that were over 18mm and so I gave myself a shot of Pregnyl and 36 hours later I got my IUI. It was not successful and for the next cycle I will start at 150 iu of Follistim. I have lower estrogen levels and so they want to start getting those numbers higher right from the start.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women. (Assigned nurse: Monica)
Everyone in the Reproductive Endocrinologist floor is very kind. The receptionists are always friendly and helpful.

I really feel that everyone there is pulling for you to get a positive test.

Dr. Delaney offered very detailed facts that were easy to comprehend. Together we designed a plan and set off on our journey as a team...Her warmth and positivity are contagious as she gave me a sense of comfort in a time of uncertainty...We increased the dosage in my injections for the third IUI which resulted in a successful pregnancy of a singleton.
The [Methodist for Women] rooms were clean and conveniently designed for female patients. A personal restroom in each patient room was greatly appreciated. The medical equipment was current and high tech...The nursing staff were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home there in the clinic...Payments were due at the time of visit.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Delaney came highly recommend to us. We walked into our first consultation nervous and scared-unsure of what our future would look like. Dr. Delaney offered very detailed facts that were easy to comprehend. Together we designed a plan and set off on our journey as a team. Dr. Delaney filled our hearts with hope and eased our minds. From that point on each and every appointment was crafted with clear details and compassion from Dr. Delaney. She has a way of always making you feel as if you are her one and only patient she is caring for. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated that. We think so highly of Dr. Delaney and have since recommended her to friends seeking fertility support.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
My biggest advice is to take questions with you. Have them written down prior to your appointments. Your questions will be clearly answered by Dr. Delaney.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
After being highly recommend to see Dr. Delaney I quickly noticed how engaged and educated she was. Once we designed a plan and began our journey I instantly felt the passion Dr. Delaney has for her patients. Her warmth and positivity are contagious as she gave me a sense of comfort in a time of uncertainty.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
Dr. Delaney followed my very closely. I gave myself injections, did the hcg trigger shot and then we proceeded with the IUI. My first IUI was a successful pregnancy that resulted in multiples. My second IUI was not a success. We increased the dosage in my injections for the third IUI which resulted in a successful pregnancy of a singleton.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
The nursing staff were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home there in the clinic. I never once felt uncomfortable with any of the nurses. They were quick to learn our names and were so friendly.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
The clinic is very organized, clean and on time with appointments. I also appreciated the high level of confidentiality that was provided. Doors opened promptly in the morning for walk-ins and the ladies up front were always quick to help and get katie ya checked in quickly. The rooms were clean and conveniently designed for female patients. A personal restroom in each patient room was greatly appreciated. The medical equipment was current and high tech. What I really liked most of all was the amount of pictures of babies hanging on the wall back by the patient rooms. It was a way of proving how invested the clinic, nurses and physicians are with each and every patient. One thing I should mention was the flexibility in appointment times. I really appreciated the early walk-ins appointments. I was a full-time working mom and thankfully never found myself struggling to get to my appointments. If you are looking for compassion, flexibility, knowledge and kindness then Dr. Delaney at Women’s Methodist is definitely the place you need to be for your journey.

My experiences with Dr. Delaney have been wonderful....During every stage of our treatment she reassured us and helped explain the process as much as we needed. She is always timely on calling us and giving us answers. What I could use more from Dr. Delaney is her bluntness. She is so sweet and comforting that sometimes I think it is difficult for her to be blunt with patients....I came to Dr. Delaney with what we thought was a blocked fallopian tube. After further testing, Dr. Delaney was able to confirm I did not have a blocked fallopian tube.
The first thing I noticed about the clinic [Methodist for Women] is how discreet and confidential it is. Infertility can be an awkward and nerve racking experience, but once you step through those doors they make you feel so welcome and helpful. I experienced timeliness too. They were very respectful of my time and our experience. They had several TV's and magazines available to use while you waited....An ultrasound was $225 and an ultrasound and lab work was $317. Specimen test was $550.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
My experiences with Dr. Delaney have been wonderful. From our consultation to our 3 failed IUI's, I always felt Dr. Delaney had our best interests at heart. During every stage of our treatment she reassured us and helped explain the process as much as we needed. She is always timely on calling us and giving us answers. What I could use more from Dr. Delaney is her bluntness. She is so sweet and comforting that sometimes I think it is difficult for her to be blunt with patients. I already recommend Dr. Delaney to my friends and family who are on their own infertility journeys, so I am very pleased with our experience as a patient!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
One piece of advice I would give to a prospective patient is to try not to get discouraged. Sometimes when the answer and results aren't what we want, it is easy to blame the doctor or treatment for not working. But remember, she always has her patients best interest at heart and she too is hopeful each and every round of treatment. My confidence in her skills and knowledge help me from becoming easily discouraged.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I felt like a human to Dr. Delaney because during our consultation she shared her own story of her infertility journey with us. This helped me to relate to her because I knew she struggled with our similar issue. Because of her openness, my husband and I felt like we could trust her, therefore we felt comfortable with her and her opinion and choices. During the infertility process what I needed most was to trust and feel comfortable with my doctor, that is why I felt more as a human than a number to her.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Delaney with what we thought was a blocked fallopian tube. After further testing, Dr. Delaney was able to confirm I did not have a blocked fallopian tube. After establishing that, came the diagnosis. My husbands sperm results came back normal and my diagnostic testing came back normal also. She diagnosed us with unexplained infertility, which means without the help from medicine we would have a 5% chance on conceiving on our own. Because of this diagnosis, Dr. Delaney decided the next treatment option should be an IUI. We started with 75ml subq of Follistem every day. Every few days we had an ultrasound to check the size of the follicles and I had a lab draw to check my hormone levels. Once the follicles were at the optimal size around 2.0, I received the "trigger" injection, HCG, in the upper botocks. Roughly 24-48 hours later I had the IUI procedure. I started on progesterone suppositories 3 days after the IUI. A few days after our first IUI I had dark red spotting which is not normal. Dr. Delaney said that was due to a lack of progesterone. That IUI round failed. Dr. Delaney was pleased with the number of follicles I produced with that dosage so we performed another IUI with the exact procedure as above. But this time instead of using suppository progesterone, I use the progesterone in oil injection in my upper botock, due to spotting from previous IUI. This is a higher dose and more direct way for the body to get progesterone. That also resulted in a failed IUI. I was still producing quality follicles so we tried a 3rd IUI, which resulted in another failed IUI, same treatment as 2nd IUI. After this, Dr. Delaney recommended we try IVF. She stated the chances of a positive pregnancy are higher with IVF then IUI and with 3 failed IUI's this would be our best next step for treatment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
The nursing staff were the best i've seen. They were caring and considerate of the circumstances that we were there for. They were thorough and explained all the treatment and procedures to use as much as needed. When I call with a question I always get an answer within 1-2 hours later. I never feel like I am bugging them or that I am asking non important questions.

We were very pleased with Dr. Delaney, I the initial testing it was discovered that I had a polyp and she worked quickly to schedule and complete the removal so that it would not prolong our IVF process. ...

How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
We were very pleased with Dr. Delaney, I the initial testing it was discovered that I had a polyp and she worked quickly to schedule and complete the removal so that it would not prolong our IVF process. As we went through treatment she took the time to answer all our questions and personally called us when we had the first round of embryos PGS tested and didn't have any that were able to be used. On the second round she took the time to work with us on our concerns about PGS and supported our decision to not have it done. She diligently worked to track and make sure that we would have successful outcomes with the medicines because I only have one ovary.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Be very open and share anything that you can even if you think it might not matter or have impact, because she will address your concerns and research them if needed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
She took the time to explain everything in detail and called personally to deliver results and discuss outcomes.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
On our first cycle I wasn't responding the way she had thougt so my medicine was increased after our first visit, this did result increase the outcome. However we did not end up with any viable embryos for implantation due to the outcome of PGS testing. On the second round she chose to begin on a slightly higher dose from the start which produced one more embryo from the first round. With only having one ovary she was very realistic with is on the number of embryos that we wouldn't likely achieve.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women.
She was very thoughrough in providing us results or seeking the answers to our questions. We had a lot of questions surrounding the outcome of our PGS testing and she went above and beyond to answer or get answers to them.

She [Dr. Abigail Delaney] is kind and cheers you in through the process. She really wants the best results for all involved.

I had ivf with gonal-f only [with Dr. Abigail Delaney]. Other doctors have since treated me with gonal-f + menopur and had better IVF results...There were moments when Dr. Delaney really showed that she cared, like when I miscarried. But for the most part, all care routed through nurses and I couldn't even get access to speak with the doctor...We went through IVF with her once, and she never told us during treatment that I had low estradiol compared to the follicles growing. Nor did she adjust my protocol to use Menopur, which other doctors that treated me since have all done, and my estradiol responded. As a result, we retrieved 15+ eggs and had no embryo to transfer.

[Dr. Abigail Delaney] was on maternity leave herself when we found out that I had a chemical pregnancy and she still called me. When I was hospitalized after complications from an egg retrieval, she came in the hospital room and just sat with my husband and I for awhile after she had gotten off work just to make sure we were okay. When we finally got pregnant, she made sure she got to do our last ultrasound before releasing me to our OB in our town so she could congratulate us.
Our clinic [Methodist for Women] was extremely organized. We never left feeling confused or not knowing what our next steps were. They were very responsive if we called with questions. Everyone we came in contact with was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. It felt less like a clinic and more like our home away from home.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
Dr Delaney is so knowledgeable. She changed our treatment when things didn't work. She was always hopeful and promised she would tell us if she didn't think something was in our best interest or if it wouldn't work. IVF is hard enough, but she made it so much easier. I had previously seen other doctors that didn't listen to me or take my concerns seriously. Abby listened to us and we felt heard. I always felt that I was in the best hands when I was with her and completed trusted any decision she made. We are so thankful that we ended up with her and are currently 27 weeks pregnant with twins!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
I would encourage any future patient to trust her. She knows how important this is to her patients and she wants it to work just as badly as you do!

When we finally got pregnant, she made sure she got to do our last ultrasound before releasing me to our OB in our town so she could congratulate us. She is absolutely amazing.
Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
We had 1 retrieval that we only had 2 embryos. We transferred both and it failed. She changed our medication protocol for the second retrieval and we were much more successful and ended up with 12 embryos. After a few more unsuccessful transfers, she informed me of some new testing (receptiva and the ERA). She did those tests and discovered that I did have endemtriosis. We treated that, did another cycle and we are now expecting twins.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Methodist for Women. (Assigned nurse: Monica)

The clinic had a very routine experience for monitoring ultrasounds. You arrive during a certain timeframe, sign in, and they would get you in and out quickly. However, you never felt rushed. We were always welcome to ask questions or stop and talk to a nurse or your doctor if needed.

My first child was conceived through IUI with not many issues. When I returned to see Dr. Delaney in hopes of my second child, things got more difficult. IUIs didn’t work, and then after a miscarriage through IVF using a PGS normal embryo, she had her work cut out for her...made sure that I knew she was nowhere near ready to give up. She opted for more testing, and I tested positive for receptiva (endometriosis)...followed her advice for treatment and my next transfer was successful. I felt like Dr. Delaney walked with me every step of the way. It was as if she was part of my family. We cried together, laughed together and then cheered when we got the result we wanted...

You are never waiting long in the rooms as well. It’s a great system...Dr. Delaney was open to what you wanted to transfer. We did one pgs tested embryo and a no result for two of my transfers.
How was your experience with Abigail Delaney at Methodist for Women?
My first child was conceived through IUI with not many issues. When I returned to see Dr. Delaney in hopes of my second child, things got more difficult. IUIs didn’t work, and then after a miscarriage through IVF using a PGS normal embryo, she had her work cut out for her. She was very patient when explaining everything we could do. She made sure that I knew she was nowhere near ready to give up. She opted for more testing, and I tested positive for receptiva (endometriosis). This was a big win knowing why I was miscarrying (had two natural miscarriages before seeking treatment). I followed her advice for treatment and my next transfer was successful. I felt like Dr. Delaney walked with me every step of the way. It was as if she was part of my family. We cried together, laughed together and then cheered when we got the result we wanted. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else as my fertility doctor.

Describe the protocols Abigail Delaney used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
My IUIs and IVF were fairly normal protocol. Pgs tested my 7 embryos which resulted in 3 normal, 2 no result and 2 abnormal. First transfer was unsuccessful, second transfer resulted in a miscarriage around 8 weeks. I tested positive for receptiva, so did two months of Lupron before transfer. I needed two shots of progesterone in oil a day to get my number where it needed to be. 3rd transfer was successful and resulted in a live birth of a baby girl.
